Claire Phipps


Founder / Teacher

Hi! I am the proud founder of Pumped Dance School, an enthusiastic and passionate dance teacher and performer. I started dancing at an early age and have studied in Tap, Jazz, Rock & Roll and most recently Burlesque. When I discovered the amazing style of street and hip hop dance I instantly fell in love with it! My passion and excitement for this dance is shown in my classes and I love bringing fun and laughter into my teaching. To see my students enjoying the dance style is just so rewarding.

Anna Scholey


Teacher / Dancer

Hi, I’m Anna, teacher and choreographer for Pumped Dance School. I’ve been dancing since the early age of 5 starting with Ballet, Tap and modern then moving into Musical Theatre and contemporary whilst studying performing arts at college. I later grew to love street, hip hop and commercial styles of dance and started teaching my own creative routines for a Gloucestershire based dance school before moving to Bristol and joining Pumped. Full of energy and enthusiasm my classes are always upbeat and fun.. with some occasional bad attempts at singing!

Charlotte Profile


Teacher / Dancer

Hi! I’m Charlotte and I look after the smaller Pumped dancers amongst us! I have always been involved in dance and knew from a young age that dance and fitness would be the career choice for me! I am a fully qualified ISTD-FDI teacher and take classes in a variety of dance styles mainly street, modern and musical theatre based. I am also a fitness instructor and teach Zumba as well as aerobics classes. I love working with children and feel that they can get a lot of enjoyment out of dance and the social element dance classes bring!


Teacher / Dancer

Hi I’m Katie and I am a teacher and dancer with Pumped Dance School! I have been dancing since the age of 11, first training at Minety Dance and Theatre School in Jazz, Tap and Ballet. I had my first taste of the limelight at the Wyvern Theatre in Swindon; starring in five musicals as part of their Summer Youth Project. I then went on to perform at a local holiday camp before directing and choreographing the Bournemouth University production of Fame in 2007. I have been dancing with Pumped for two years and perform professionally with their commercial dance troupe Fierce. I may not always be able to tell my left from my right but my classes are guaranteed to be fun and energetic!


Our vision is to give people a happier healthier and more confident life through professional dance classes accessible to all.
